Road to the World Cup Release Date

The Road to the World Cup promo will be released on Friday, 25 November, at the usual time of 2pm ET / 6pm GMT.

Road to World Cup COUNTDOWN


The event will run for one week only, with World Cup Stories replacing it on Friday, 2 December.

Road to the World Cup

The Road to the World Cup promo will be a brand-new event in Ultimate Team, so we're not too sure what to expect!


We assume that new Road to the World Cup cards will be added to packs, with more released via Objectives and SBCs, as is usual during promos.

However, who the cards could be given to or what sort of mechanics they may have is unknown.

ICONIC - Pele will forever be associated with his World Cup performances

More World Cup Icons are set to feature and be a large part of the promo, with the upgraded cards added to packs for a limited time only - as we saw with the WC FUT Heroes in the Path to Glory promo.

The WC Swaps campaign will continue, with additional Tokens able to be earned throughout the event.

Road to the World Cup will launch on Black Friday too, so expect to see plenty of Flash SBCs and cut-price packs on offer!


So far we haven't seen any leaks for Road to the World Cup players, however, all the World Cup Icons have been revealed.


Pele (OVR 96), Zinedine Zidane (OVR 95) and Ronaldo (OVR 95) are all set to feature, with 30 other Icons getting the upgraded variant.

We don't yet know if all the leaked WC Icons will come in packs, but we think this will be unlikely, with some surely coming via SBCs.
